E-commerce site Alibaba is offering cases for the unannounced, redesigned iPad 5. The cases suggest, as do recent rumors, that Apple’s next tablet will take on the iPad mini's form factor. This is the second report that shows cases for the purported iPad 5 cases. Last week, MiniSuit claimed it had begun manufacturing cases for the fifth generation device. We wouldn’t recommend buying a case for an unannounced device. However, as AppleInsider first indicated, Alibaba has often been the place that Chinese suppliers have leaked details about actual products. In other words, look, but don’t buy! To see some of the cases listed go here, and here. See also: Yeah, We Probably Shouldn't Skip The iPad 5, and The One iPad 5 Rumor We Haven’t Heard Much About But Really Should.
